    Yet another “goshwow” post, no real information just a couple of pictures. I’m getting tired of people just using this as a pipe to flickr. Please, if you’re going to post, and this does look like a worthy project, post with INFORMATION. schematics, parts lists, something…
    Not like it needs to be all pretty and perfect, but consider the audience a little. We like to see HOW not just that you did something and want a gold star.

    If you go to the Flicker link and scroll around to find the bottom photo, you’ll see that photo has some links to instructions. The instructions aren’t for the exact build but should get you close enough.
    There are a total of four images at Flicker each with short build notes.
    If there’s more interest I’d be happy to provide more info/photos.
